Pros: There was a female cabin crew (I can't recall her name but I guess she was the only female serving food) on Flight 209 from Accra to Washington on September 3, 2019 - her negative attitude absolutely disqualifies her to be a cabin crew on any flight. Besides that, the seats were comfortable.

I made it to the gate 5 minutes before it closed. Food ran out by the time it got to me and the only option was sea food. movie options were old and limited. the plane delayed.

Pros: The crew was great, the food was fine; it was all very much as good as could be expected. It was a very positive experience relative to industry norms.

Cons: Boarding (and deplaning) is inherently tedious; I'm not sure what could be done to fix it. And sitting on planes for 17 - 19 hours is just brutal. This is not South African Airline's fault, it's a problem across the board, and i don't see this changing anytime soon. Also, the human air-travel carbon footprint is completely unsustainable, which is also not the (particular) fault of South African Airlines. In fact, it's my fault for participating...

Cons: Turkish was phenomenal. FareScan could have definitely been better. After booking they called demanding another $145 for my seats. They said they couldn’t complete my reservation without it and needed an email confirmation from me to approve the new charge. Seeing I was short on time, I didn’t have a choice. Will never do business with them again.

Okay 4,6

Pros: The Media available for viewing was very good. There was a lot of choices, both movies and TV shows. They could be viewed in 4 different languages. It helped make our 10 hour flight a bit easier.

Cons: Our flight was delayed by 2+15 hours. We were told as compensation we would be able to access the South African Airlines lounge. When we went there they said we had been misinformed. When we boarded the plane I was pleased at first to see that we were in a 2 seat row and wouldn't have to deal with the horrid middle seat. This didn't last long due to the person in front of me reclining thier seat onto my lap. Within one hour we were served a meal that I declined since I had eaten during my two hour wait to board the plan. At 2:30 in the afternoon they had everyone shut the shades and the plane remained dark all day. It wasn't until the dinner serving that the lights came on. You did have the option of the seat lamp that offered little light. The staff seemed jaded. They did nothing wrong but they seemed to do as little as possible. The day before we had flown on Mango airlines and it was excellent. The staff were smiling, helpful and took extra care of the elderly passengers. They have extra leg room also.

Okay 5,0

Cons: We placed a bid to upgrade and it was accepted at the last minute - we were traveling from the USA and something went wrong with our credit card so SA was unable to charge the card. When we arrived at airport a couple hours later the bid was no longer valid and the ticketing people informed us it would be $220 more per person than the bid that was accepted. Felt like it was a scam. We declined to purchase the upgrade at the increased price

Pros: The foot rest under the seats was very nice

Cons: bags were lost, I had another flight 36 hours later. I was going to a conference and my suits were in the lost bag, because i was flying to brasil (not my home) on a brasilian passport I was not given any money to purchase clothes for my conference. the flight delayed 2 hours. poor entertainment selection. i will NEVER EVER fly TAAG again!!

Mediocre 3,0

Pros: The foot rest under the seats was very nice

Cons: when i purchased the tickets excess baggage was 80 USD, when I got to the airport it was 250 USD even though the website said 200 USD. They checked my bags through before i presented a payment receipt, I was not able to pay because I could not afford it. The crew took 2 hours to find my bags and bring them back, I lost all time at the airport (I arrived 3 hours before the flight). was not able to eat, or drink anything before boarding. I made it to the gate 5 minutes before it closed. Food ran out by the time it got to me and the only option was sea food. movie options were old and limited. the plane delayed.

Pros: The flight was really cheap. Although you get what you pay for. My seat didn’t have entertainment working. This is not the first time that it happens and the crew only look at your face and say sorry. Doesn’t do anything about it.

Cons: Entertainment working, better food, not allowing passengers with 3 big luggages as carry on.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in ZAR.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
